Ecuador is one of the most diverse countries in the world though it's comparably tiny. Beside the Galapagos Islands (which is the #1 tourist destination in Ecuador) the country has a lot more to offer, therefore I focussed on La Sierra in this video which is a paradise for landscape lovers and outdoor adventurers.

Another reason to visit the Andean region is that you have the chance to dive into the local culture and get a real feeling of Ecuador. The places to see in Ecuador I focussed on in this short video are the result of my own travels along the center from north to south and are easily doable in 2 weeks time.

Things to do in Ecuador covered in this video:
01) 00:36 - Otavalo market in Otavalo
02) 01:00 - Hike the Cuicocha lake
03) 01:25 - Middle of the World, Mitad del Mundo & Quitsato in Cayambe
04) 01:48 - Quito, capital & UNESCO World Heritage
05) 02:08 - Termas de Papallacta (hot springs)
06) 02:24 - Cayambe Coca National Park
07) 02:45 - Quilotoa & Shalala viewpoint
08) 03:13 - Tren Crucero & Nariz del Diablo (Devil's nose)
09) 03:47 - Inka ruins in Ingapirca
10) 04:04 - Cuenca & it's beautiful old town

What are your best things to do in Ecuador?
I’m looking forward to more tips from other travelers and Ecuador experts. Have you been and know of some cool places? Let us know in the comments below!

Best Places to Visit in Ecuador

Ranging from the misty jungles and roaring waterfalls of the Amazon in the east to the salt-sprayed Pacific seaboard in the west, Ecuador encompasses everything from wondrous cloud forests to brooding volcanos, Andean peaks and Incan ruins between its borders.
Ecuador is one of the most fascinating nations in South America. Bordered by Colombia, Peru, and the Pacific Ocean and no larger than most US states, this beautiful country attracts climbers, trekkers, adventurers, and nature lovers to its lush, ecologically important forests; wildlife watchers to its famous Galápagos Islands; and sun seekers to its pristine tropical beaches. Here are the best places to visit in Ecuador.

Ecuador is a country straddling the equator on South America’s west coast. Its diverse landscape encompasses Amazon jungle, Andean highlands and the wildlife-rich Galápagos Islands. In the Andean foothills at an elevation of 2,850m, Quito, the capital, is known for its largely intact Spanish colonial center, with decorated 16th- and 17th-century palaces and religious sites, like the ornate Compañía de Jesús Church.

10. Guayaquil
As Ecuador’s largest city with almost 2.7 million people, Guayaquil is the commercial heart of Ecuador. Located on the banks of the Guayas River that leads to the Pacific Ocean, the city was founded in 1538 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Orellana. The Parque Historico Guayaqui offers colonial buildings, lush gardens and animals native to the country; visitors especially like the free admission.

09. Mindo
Mindo offers environmentally conscious travelers the best of two biodiversified ecosystems: the tropical Andes and the Chocoan lowlands. Here, visitors will see cloud forests, farmlands, three major rivers and hundreds of streams. One of Ecuador’s most popular tourist destinations, Mindo provides a wide variety of outdoor activities ranging from rafting and bird-watching to mountain biking, horseback riding and hiking.

08. Salinas
Salinas is the westernmost city in Ecuador, sitting on the Pacific Ocean, which makes it popular with surfers and yachters. Ecuador’s most popular beach resort city offers some great beaches. It is known as Little Miami Beach because of its high-rise condominiums dotting the shoreline.

07. Quilotoa Loop
Hikers who enjoy trekking through the backcountry surely will enjoy the Quilotoa loop, a trail that takes visitors through several of Ecuador’s remote Andean villages. Hiking the loop can take up to four days, but can be done in less time if hikers take a bus between points, though they’d be missing out on some ancient trails if they did this.

06. Riobamba
Riobamba, a city in the Andean highlands, is notable for a couple of reasons. One is its proximity to Chimaborazo, Ecuador’s highest mountain that stands 6,268 meters (20,564 feet) above sea level.

05. Baños
The small city of Baños lies at the foot of the active volcano Tungurahua. Named after the hot springs fed by the thermal waters of the volcano, Baños is one of the most popular places to visit in Ecuador. Known as the “Gateway to the Amazon,” Baños is a favorite departure point for jungle tours.

04. Cuenca
Cuenca, the capital of Azuay Province, is noted for its many old colonial buildings. A classic example of a planned Renaissance town in the Americas, Cuenca shares many architectural features with Old Quito. Its narrow, cobbled streets, balconied houses with interior courtyards and white churches however are all presented without the pollution, noise and crowds of the capital.

03. Otavalo
Otavalo is home to one of the most colorful, important weekly markets in the Andes. It’s the place to go for traditional handmade craft items, including the exquisite textiles the city is famous for, leather goods and jewelry. The market has been going on for centuries, since even before the Incas.

02. Quito
At 2,800 meters (9,350 feet) above sea level, the Ecuadoran capital of Quito is the highest capital city in the world. This cosmopolitan city of 2.2 million people is located in an active volcano section of the Andes.

01. Galapagos Islands
The 19 islands that make up the Galapagos Islands are home to unique wildlife not found anywhere else in the world. They’re best known as the site that inspired Charles Darwin to come up with his theory of evolution after visiting there in 1835.

Quito Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Quito – Welcome to the closest national capital to the sun and join us as we explore all its hottest attractions.
When ready, browse vacation packages to Quito:

San Francisco de Quito, as this harmonious city is officially called, is the capital of Ecuador and sits high in the Andes straddling the equator. A #Quito #vacation means balance. Its World Heritage protected Old Town is contrasted by its progressive New Town.

The New Town, or La Mariscal, is centered on the bustling Plaza del Quinde and has markets, trendy cafés and nightlife. #Visit the Plaza de la Independencia, the Civic heart of Old Town, overlooked by the Municipal Palace, Archbishop’s Palace and Presidential Palace.

The Pichincha Volcano was once the setting of a historic battle that resulted in Quito’s liberation from Spain. But it’s the Cotopaxi Volcano, that is the Quito’s most famous landmark. While in the area, you can’t miss the Mitad del Mundo Monument and the Intiñan Solar Museum where you walk the line of the equator and be in two hemispheres at the same time.

For now, we hope you enjoy watching this #travel #guide as much as we enjoyed making it.

Three days in Quito, Ecuador: Travel video, helping you to discover the most interesting places.

We choose our hotel close to he historical center. This allows us to spend quite a lot of time there and visit all the places, churches and old streets at any day and night time.
Even though this should be the dry season, we had some rain almost every day, but not too much.

🇪🇨 Ecuador: a travel documentary

#Ecuador #Travel #Documentary

To leave behind a seascape of houses and then to find yourself walking on the half of the world.

To be purified by a shaman woman in a botanical garden and then savour the typical “tortillas de papas” dish.

To flank in silence the slope of a lake, from the height of 4,000 meters, overlooking the surrounding valleys and volcanos and then to immerse yourself in the colours and scents of one of the biggest market of all the South America.

To live the simple everyday life of a local community to then lose yourself sailing within the labyrinth of the Amazon water channels.

To fly towards a lunar, occasionally Jurassic landscape where the relationship between animals and man seems to be still primordial to then find yourself walking the urban scale of a colonial city but with a village atmosphere.

To drive along the unpredictable roads of the Pan American highway and to then find yourself climbing a mountain of 5000 meter, breathless in the snow.

And to end, at the holidays' sunset, with the Andes Cordillera following our homeward way. This, for us, is what Ecuador has been.
